@lucyjanebeach from Reigate is a little-known tactical genius, and has developed a concept called “Sentry Leaves”, where she’ll end a turn with all 4 balls together, making for an easy start, but leaving her dog, Clover, guarding the balls, on the understanding that her opponent will be too afraid to take their shot, deem it, and she can continue. This particular version is called the “4-Leave: Clover” #croquetdogs #croquet #dogs
Dog score: 9.5 - part-time therapy dog, part time rat catcher, this dog has it all!
Croquet score: 10 - the dog is part of the game!
Deductions: -2 for an awful, convoluted caption
